The inaugural edition of ‘Sybaritic Weekend’, a three-day party bonanza, will take centre stage in Jamaica from July 26 to July 28. This exclusive event features four distinct experiences offering a diverse line-up of local and international acts, including deejays, musicians, influencers, and industry players.

“The Sybaritic Weekend isn’t just about parties; it’s about fostering international cultural integration and bringing together patrons from around the globe. Whether you’re a local or visiting from overseas, prepare to be immersed in a world of opulence, harmony and Sybaritic Enjoyment,” explained Brandon Grey, creative director of the Sybaritic Entertainment Group.

Sybarites are persons who could be described as addicted to pleasures and luxury, and according to its organisers, these events are designed to overload your senses with opulence and pleasure.

The events will be held at some of the most stunning venues available in Jamaica such as the Aqueducts Rose Hall, nestled by a pristine white sandy beach, and Tropical Beach Bliss in Montego Bay, located next to the Sangster International Airports Runway.

“Experience the thrill of planes landing adjacent to the beach property whilst partying, adding an extra layer of excitement to your weekend getaway,” Grey, who is also an attorney-at-law, said.

One of the weekend’s highlights is the Afro-Soca Beach Party on July 26 at the Tropical Bliss Beach, and will be headlined by First Lady of Soca Destra Garcia and other Caribbean artistes. This party will recreate a Tulum jungle rave, a perfect blend of musical genres – soca, calypso, Afrobeats, amapiano, disco and house. Afro Soca will hold true to the spirit of carnival, allowing guests to relive carnival in the summer.

“We are also excited in launching the Sybaritic Road March where patrons will march from the venue on to the coastal highway, to enjoy an authentic road march on the beautiful coastline,” Grey said.

Other standout events include Tides & Tanlines on July 27. An ultra -luxury daytime beach party, it will showcase world music and there will also be interactive performances from trending artistes in the dancehall and international music scene. Nightfall is the signal for Sparks After-dark which will feature performances from heavy-hitting dancehall and reggae artistes and veteran selectors.

The weekend will climax with the premium all-white soiree, Diamond Dreamz on July 28. With performances from headline international acts, this event will pay homage to Jamaica’s global influence on music and culture.
